Always good to see OLTL faves back on the screen. Sadly, Miss WIlliamson plays the corpse. I assume we will see much of her in flashbacks, however, at least during this initial season.

Maybe we will see the actress again in Llanview from all the news I am reading on this site? That would be nice, too.

megan goode really should have a better acting career than having to act on a primetime soap w/ victor garber. he’s an awful actor. I won’t even bother w/ deception bec victor garber is a very untalented actor. megan goode should be a hollywood leading lady and an A lister but of course hollywood can’t have that. it’s like diversity loving hollywood has a quota for A listers. majority of the a listers are white. very few are black. while hollywood doesn’t want any a listers to be Asian american.

I watched it last night and am very intrigued. I hope it doesn’t get too ridiculous with the story telling. Great job Bree, hope you will consider coming back to OLTL. If not, Erin Tropey we’d welcome you back as well!

The debut of Deception was great and I thought Bree Williamson was great. I hope this show will be great and not a Revenge carbon copy. I know I’m going to have to watch a few more episodes to be more judgmental. Since I mostly watch primetime shows I have to get my stuff recorded working the evening shift. I depend on my DISH Hopper DVR to get my shows for me, and one thing I’ve always hated is timer conflicts. I’m happy my job DISH introduced the awesome PrimeTime Anytime feature, which records the four major networks on one… Read more »

I love Bree Williamson and definitely hope she will return to OLTL. Llanview would not be the same without Jessica. I know Bree is not the original Jessica but she certainly made the character her own and does a wonderful job.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
